Medical Negligence & Personal Injury Solicitor
Rita joined Simpson Millar in September 2018 as a Clinical and Medical Negligence Solicitor.
She has five years’ experience working in Clinical and Medical Negligence and Personal Injury claims.
Her role involves assessing, advising on and pursuing a wide range of Medical Negligence claims, including GP Negligence claims, claims against Hospitals, Dentists and Optometrists.
These claims may involve delays in referral for investigation, in diagnosis and treatment of conditions, negligent, and/or inappropriate treatment or surgery.
In pursuing Medical Negligence cases, she obtains and assesses the claimant’s medical records, and gathers expert evidence from relevant specialists in the area to confirm whether the medical care received by the claimant has fallen below the appropriate standard.
If so, she will then take the necessary evidence to prove the consequences of that negligent medical treatment on a claimant in terms of injuries and financial losses, with the aim of obtaining an appropriate amount of compensation for claimants.
After obtaining her Law degree from Sheffield Hallam University, Rita completed the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law before qualifying as a Solicitor.
